Peter Garmusch – Studio Cairo

€21.82 (excl. VAT)

For his project Studio Cairo, the artist Peter Garmusch travelled for a month during 2021 to Cairo where, with his studio as a point of departure, he engaged in an artistic dialogue with the megacity on the Nile. The book tells of this rendezvous with the hidden, the numinous, and the magical. Cloaked cars, elaborately tied-up packages along the edge of a street, abundant accumulations of plastic flowers: Peter Garmusch found the inspirations for his various motifs during intensive walks through Cairo, not at the supposedly beautiful sites.

“His photographs cannot be subsumed under the term ‘classic travel photography’—these are instead everyday portraits with a voyeuristic aesthetic. The motifs seem on the one hand to have been composed through a controlled play of light and shadow, but on the other to resemble snapshots. Thus Garmusch engages in a sensual-passionate game of confusion evincing both a ready-made character and an artistic staging.” (Viktor Bucher, projektraum.at)
